Aluminum Alloy Wire Rod

Aluminum Alloy Wire Rod

The advantage properties of aluminum alloy have light weight, excellent electrical and thermal conductivity, highly corrosion resistant and ductility.

Aluminum alloy is soft and are usually alloyed with copper, zinc, magnesium, silicon, manganese and lithium to increase strength. Aluminum alloy is exposed to air that instantly forms an anti-oxidant coating to protect products. Aluminum alloy is one of the lightest metals, the application of products ranges from precision technology to daily commodities.
